Chris Hadfield's Mission Reflections
With a breathtaking view of our planet around him, CSA Astronaut Chris Hadfield reflects upon his mission, his upcoming return to Earth and his connection with the public. Canada's first Commander of the International Space Station thanks everyone who followed and made this mission a shared experience. (Credit: CSA/NASA)

Ow, I`m going to miss Chris and his reports.
Thankyou Chris.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Wicked . :tu:
Last December, astronaut Chris Hadfield recorded the first song in space aboard the International Space Station, and he's back today with the first music video from space: a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity." Hadfield is set to return home to Earth in a Soyuz craft on the morning of May 14th, after a prolific mission in space filled with science, singing, and sharing on Twitter. The video features Hadfield moving throughout the ISS with his guitar, with some impressive vocals to boot — between the setting and the sound, it's a performance that does Bowie justice.

All the people complaining about the cost of this and that not being worth it.  If suprising results were found I bet their tune would be different.  Yes billions of dollars spent, but if the human race is ever to leave this planet and go elsewhere, money well spent.  It's just a shame that billions can't be spent down here to stop starvation and give the homeless a place to live.  But of course that would mean the helped people would need to step up and help themselves afterwards.  Seeing how messed up the welfare system is, it's easy to see why the billions aren't spent here.

Nice to see the human touch in the realms of space.

It appeared from the newsreel just after landing, that the astronauts had to sit in chairs. If this is because of muscle atrophy, then what hope of anyone actually going to Mars and landing, then carrying out the myriad of chores that will be necessary?

It has nothing to do with muscle atrophy it has more to do with balance. When Valeriy Polyakov completed his 437 day mission in 1995 he walked immediately he exited the capsule.

Remember that the ISS crew have not experienced normal gravity for 6 months. They are carried to chairs because their is the possibility that they could get dizzy and fall over.
